1971 CJ Convertible Question

On what day in 1966 did the secret Cougar marketing program begin? April 1st, April Fools day. On what day in 1968 did the Cobra Jet 428 become available in the Cougar April 1st April Fools day. Is there a message in there somewhere? This is the place to find out.

Yes there is a write up in "Road Test" Magazine 10/70 on this car. I have only seen a black and white reprint of this article.

I beleive that "Popular Mechanics" 09/70 shows the same car in their new car review edition, there is a small picture of a White/Black XR7 Conv with a hood scoop.

Thanks Mitch! I tried to find the article and came up dry. I will do a little more digging and post a link if I find it.
